Virtual Designs in Sketchup #18: How to design a Gazebo Bird House

476 days ago by rance | 9 comments »

A fellow LJ member(Belg1960) was asking about designing an Octagon Birdhouse a while back. He recently contacted me and asked if I would show him how I would do it in SketchUp. I thought I would make this public for all to see. The method that Jim Jakosh provided was certainly a good one. Every woodworker would benefit from understanding math as much as Jim does. Me, I tend to lean more on SU to do my math. The SU method I am presenting here is but one SU approach. There are other ways to ...

Building my dream shop #16: Where did the time go?

845 days ago by rep | 2 comments »

Did not realize it had been so long since I posted. Decided to go ahead and build a finishing room in the shop (temporary spare bedroom). Need to have a place for visitors over the holiday. 16×16 room with storage above. (will install stairs on the side as the next project) As you can see, we have already moved a bunch of stuff up top. ............... Also, had time to build some Extreme Birdhouse Christmas gifts. The “rustic” one is red oak, and the other i...

Birds of a Feather Contest

982 days ago by Transition | 2 comments »

Thanks so much for voting me into second place! I am humbled by the beautiful artistry that went into all of the birdhouses. They are an inspiration and have certainly expanded my creative boundaries through viewing each and reading the accompanying anecdotes. I am proud to belong to such a collection of skill and imagination. The greatest reward here comes in the sharing of our gifts, and I believe a hearty “thank you” is due all of those entered the contest, and for that ma...

Just for Fun... #52: Not much going on... might as well build a birdhouse...

1001 days ago by littlecope | 15 comments »

Those of you who’ve been on LJ’s for a while may recall my first effort at a birdhouse which began hereSomewhere in there, I mentioned that there was another one to re-build, but I had to wait until it was vacated… Well, the thing finally fell to the ground and the sparrows were forced to re-locate…So today I had a rare free day, and decided to re-work this… Just to begin with, I didn’t like the “eaves” arrangement… I think the guy who ori...

1431 days ago by littlecope | 15 comments »

After blasting out the parts for the new Birdhouse last week on the band saw,The assembly went just as quickly. The parts were taken home, the necessary access hole added, a top post/hanging bracket fashioned, and pilot holes were drilled for the attachment of the slats for the roof.I forgot how much fun building a birdhouse can be!! They’re for the birds, after all, and they will never be overly critical… :)With the assembly finished, it was on to the finishing department… ...

Just for Fun... #14: An Adventure in Bandsawing...

1435 days ago by littlecope | 20 comments »

Last night, after dinner, I went out in my Parent’s yard to have a smoke, on one of my favorite benches in the world…It’s an old-timer I found at the dump about 40 years ago… I brought it home, and my Dad put new slats on it to replace the old broken ones… a fresh coat of paint and it’s been “in-service” for many years…You may ask, “What does that have to do with Band Sawing?!” Well, I’m glad you asked!!I looked up from m...
